Connie Ladenburg - District 4

Dear Friends and Neighbors,

I want to inform you about a great new higher-education opportunity right here in Pierce County. Pacific Lutheran University, located in Parkland, has created a new 253 Bound scholarship. The new scholarship is designed to help make PLU more accessible to local low-income students and their families. It’s great to see the community working together to improve higher education! As a graduate of PLU, I can tell you that it is a great institution. The philosophy of the school is to make sure that everyone succeeds. The staff is very involved and supportive of all students.

I invite you to learn more about this great opportunity.

New 253 Bound full tuition scholarship for local students

The new 253 PLU Bound scholarship awards students who qualify with full tuition for four years at Pacific Lutheran University through a combination of federal, state and PLU grants and scholarships.

First-year students beginning at PLU in fall 2016 will be the first eligible to receive the scholarship. The 253 Bound scholarship is designed for College Bound eligible students who attend a high school in the 253 area code, have a 3.70 or better cumulative high school G.P.A. and will be entering PLU as a first-year student.

PLU has a long history of awarding full tuition scholarships to local students and students from all over the state who are College Bound eligible. The Washington State Legislature enacted the College Bound Scholarship ( to provide college financial assistance to seventh- and eighth-grade students who meet eligibility requirements.
